Health care Blues
Friday, November 17, 2017
My excellent healthcare insurance ends Dec 31. I have now subjected myself to the degradation that is the Healthcare Marketplace. I felt like I was applying for welfare in person, in a huge room full of people. For $640 a month, I get the privilege of not being covered for anything except a well woman visit and a mammogram, until I rack up $6200 in deductible medical expenses. This a a bronze plan and I don't qualify for subsidy help since as a house hold of one and I am not working, I make too much money. Huh!! I can't pay $800 to $1000 a month and still have to meet a ridiculous deductible. Health Care in this country sucks big time. What a racket.
Now 250 pounds, the best thing I can do for myself is lose weight. I had to say goodbye to my doctor today too, he doesn't accept those crappy plans.
